We all had a great tour visiting Hobbiton today with beautiful country scenery and excellent summer weather. Spent time checking out the Hobbit Holes and learning interesting Hobbiton facts and having drinks while hanging out at 'The Green Dragon Inn' (ssshhh sorry can't tell you more, you'll have to visit and see for yourself).

Thanks everyone for a good day out.






Great for those looking for a little excitement. Auckland has Delta Force Paintball in Woodhill, West Auckland.

Professionally trained staff offer movie set paintball scenarios in incredible natural New Zealand landscape with state of the art equipment.

There are no cafes in the area so visitors will need to take their own Food and water.
